The Shred - the REAL Day 26

It took a while, but I was able to get the kids down for a nap. I changed into my workout clothes (because I can't imagine doing this in jeans and a long sleeved shirt!) - and went crazy.

Yes, I said crazy, folks. Crazy like my pal Erin there. Yup, I think that's what I needed; a challenge. A challenge from Erin who said that Level 2 of The Shred is easy, and a challenge that my stepmom gave me on facebook. She said, "I'm guessing this is going to be a good Shred today, based on the Rant!!"

That's what I needed to get me going.

I popped in the video - and I went. I followed along with Amazon woman and did it all. Sure, I stopped for a 3 count on the plank squats (those are some hard core ab/cardio work!), I also stopped for another 3 count during that last ab session -- those are torture! But I did it. I did the entire thing on level 2 (-6 seconds). Success.

I didn't feel like I was going to die. I hurt, sure, but death was not a thought. I was sweaty, I was a little sore (those v lifts at the end are a killer!) but man, do I ever feel good about myself for doing it! I need that challenge and motivation!!! Thanks Erin and Karen, you gave me something that I didn't even realize was lacking!

Please comment, please. It makes me feel good, and well -- a woman just likes to feel good every now and then. I may not agree with your comment, it may even tick me off and make me want to delete it...but comment anyway and make my day.
